Vietnam: Fujitsu and FPT collaborate in smart agriculture

Fujitsu Limited and FPT Corporation announced on December 8 that, as part of their smart agriculture project collaboration announced in October 2014, they have established the Fujitsu - FPT Akisai Farm and Vegetable Factory to spotlight the FUJITSU Intelligent Society Solution "Akisai" Food and Agriculture Cloud, in Hanoi, capital of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. FPT will coordinate with Fujitsu in putting smart agriculture in practice and transfer this technology to Vietnam.

By leveraging the expertise in the agriculture field of the Fujitsu Group, beginning with the co-creation of new business models with companies and organizations, such as agricultural producers, distributors, food processors, local governments, academic institutions, and agricultural-machinery and materials suppliers, from industries and categories beyond agriculture as Fujitsu has done in Japan, Fujitsu will implement two production facilities in Vietnam that employ cutting-edge technology: greenhouse cultivation and vegetable factory cultivation. These facilities will implement and introduce trial cultivation for vegetables including medium-sized tomatoes and low-potassium leaf lettuce. Fujitsu and FPT will officially open the showcase on February 24, 2016.

Fujitsu and FPT will use this showcase as a location to promote local smart agriculture co-creation activities, involving the Vietnamese government and companies from a variety of industries, and to contribute to the further development of Vietnam's agricultural sector.
